COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Did you like Before During and after Christmas? Maybe thought it pored brilliantly, the alcohol was admirable well hidden and you loved how the arrogant amount of hops numbed you. This beer will knock your tongue off, essentially due to the obscure amount of hops that went down this explosive fella Ė itís a tour de force in hoppyness and by far the craziest beer ever made from Evil Twin Ė but not the last.

33 cl bottle from Vinmonopolet CC Vest. Pours hazy amber with a medium offwhite head that leaves a small lacing. Strong aroma of pine and grape. Taste is well balanced between sweetness and bitterness. Some alcohol warmness. The strength of this one is very vell hidden ! Cool stuff

Great appearance and nose, very hoppy, fruity with hints if malt. But I really thought this one was waaay too sweet. Itís always a problem for me with very strong beers, I donít get why they always add so much sugar. Itís adding a nice bitterness and kind of ruins it for me.

Sediments in a orange colored otherwise clear beer. The smell promises hops (who would have guessed). The taste is insanely sweet which covers the amount of bitterness to a reasonable dose. Nevertheless, this beer is seriously strong. The viscosity is insanely though.

SinH4 (346) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 19, 2015
Orange color with small white head. Huge sedimenta. Aroma is honey, toffee, hints at a big malt backbone. Pines. The hops blend in there well. Taste is honey, sweet, but also very bitter, a root bitterness, almost medicinal, resinous. Warming boozy finish. For this ABV the booziness is surprisingly low, but the warming bitterness cannot be hidden. Smooth carbonation, sticky mouthfeel. A huge beer with a huge punch.

vandc01 (122) - North Branch, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2015
Poured a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Aroma - dank smell, very good. Appearance - must be bottle conditioned because the pour is cloudy and full of sediment. I need to make sure I donít pour the entire bottle. Taste - medium mouth feel, with a huge bite at the end of the tongue, which I like. Overall - I has hesitant with it being such a big beer, but this is very solid.

dambor (87) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 10, 2015
Pours orange with a small head disappearing very fast. Aroma: a lot of herbs, white fruit and strong malt aromas which tell you immediately this is not a lightweight beer. Taste: very full taste, medium carbonation, with bitter herbish taste and malt balancing each other very well. All this is very intense. The bitter, pleasant aftertone stays on your tongue for a long time after taking a sip. Warming effect from the alcohol in the palate, however, the 13% ABV is very well hidden. In general this is a fantastic double IPA, but something not for the faint of heart.

stoutnick (637) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2015
Light golden - looks lovely! Smells like mild dank hops and butterscotch sweet. Very sweet oily hops and some bitterness. Bit sickly. Not my cup of tea.

kiwianer (3413) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 7, 2015
The head is robust, the body orange-brown and cloudy. It smells f****** fruity, peach, apricot, apple, orange, mandarine, etc. The taste is very creamy, juicy like a smoothie, fruity, apricot, peach, (...). Delicious and warming! Cheers!

EKGoldings (580) - Radford, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2015
Pours slightly hazy amber, large bubbles, lots of tiny particles floating around. Big aroma, pick any descriptor for hops and its here: pine, floral, cat pee, citrus. Full body, rich taste, more cat pee, sweet malt. Too sweet. Oh, this is a big, big DIPA/TIPA but balance and drinkable it ainít. Too much r.s., too much cat pee, Iíd drop the carbonation a bit, as it is though, the balance is OK. For what it is, the alcohol is well hidden. I can drink a shot or two before this becomes undrinkable. Not what Iíd rate highly in a beer.

Quite sweet with citrus and exotic fruit from the hops against a heavy biscuity malt. Very well balanced and not at all boozy which is quite impressive given the ABV.
